In order to improve the already existing models that are used extensively in bio sciences and applied sciences research, a new class of Weighted Power function distribution (WPFD) has been proposed with its various properties and different modifications to be more applicable in real life. We have provided the mathematical derivations for the new distribution including moments, incomplete moments, conditional moments, inverse moments, mean residual function, vitality function, order statistics…

The modified control charts for monitoring the shape parameter of weighted power function distribution under classical estimator

Zaka et al provided a new distribution called the Weighted Power function distribution (WPFD), which has application in reliability engineering and survival analysis. They used different estimation

Control Charts for the Shape Parameter of Skewed Distribution

The weighted distributions are useful when the sampling is done using an unequal probability of the sampling units. The Weighted Power function distribution (WPFD) has applications in the fields of



A generalization of the compound rayleigh distribution: using a bayesian method on cancer survival times

In this paper the generalized compound Rayleigh model, exhibiting flexible hazard rate, is high¬lighted. This makes it attractive for modelling survival times of patients showing characteristics of a

A new weighted distribution as an extension of the generalized half-normal distribution with applications

ABSTRACT In this study, a new extension of generalized half-normal (GHN) distribution is introduced. Since this new distribution can be viewed as weighted version of GHN distribution, it is called as


In this paper, we present some methods for estimating the parameters of the two parameter Power function distribution. We used the least squares method (LSM), relative least squares method (RELS) and

Some properties of size - biased weighted Weibull distribution

This paper introduces a new distribution based on the Weibull distribution, known as Size biased weighted Weibull distribution (SWWD). Some characteristics of the new distribution are obtained. Plots

Modified Moment, Maximum Likelihood and Percentile Estimators for the Parameters of the Power Function Distribution

This paper is concerned with the modifications of maximum likelihood, moments and percentile estimators of the two parameter Power function distribution. Sampling behavior of the estimators is

Transmuted Weighted Exponential Distribution and Its Application

In this paper, we have introduced Transmuted Weighted Exponential Distribution (TWED) and investigated its different characteristic as well as structural properties. Expressions for the Renyi

Weighted distributions and size-biased sampling with applications to wildlife populations and human families

When an investigator records an observation by nature according to a certain stochastic model, the recorded observation will not have the original distribution unless every observation is given an

Estimation of Weibull parameters from common percentiles

Estimation of Weibull distribution shape and scale parameters is accomplished through use of symmetrically located percentiles from a sample. The process requires algebraic solution of two equations


In this paper, some size-biased probability distributions and their generalizations have been introduced. These distributions provide a unifying approach for the problems where the observations fall
